If I Were King by Chelsea O'Byrne
A new book both written and illustrated by our very own Chelsea O'Byrne!
It was a true delight to be around Chelsea as she brought this book to life - her first time being both author and illustrator, and we think you're going to truly love the result. Of course we had to celebrate this book with an entire window dedicated to "If I Were King". Come down to pick up your copy and get your photo taken with a crown, just like Thomas' from the book!
From the publisher - "Thomas is fed up with his annoying family. He has been stuck inside with them for ages and he can’t even escape into his books without his annoying little brother distracting him.
“If I were a king, I would be in charge! No more eggs and toast for breakfast, I’d eat CAKE! I would read books all day long, and wear a glittering gold crown that I’d never take off.”
But after a night of particularly strong wishing, he wakes up a king and can do anything he wants! Living in the castle are all the other children who had the same wish. Things are fun at first but, even though he is allowed cake for breakfast, it doesn’t seem as fun as if he could share it with his naughty little brother."
This is a heartwarming story about the power of imagination and the even greater power of home.
